Bridging Our Divides. Building Our Community.

Bridge Builders Charlotte is a network of campus-community partnerships connecting across religious difference to strengthen our social fabric and build opportunity for all people. Designed as a collaboration between Queens University's Belk Chapel and Interfaith Youth Core, Bridge Builders Charlotte was funded in its first phase by The Gambrell Foundation to address Covid-related concerns from food insecurity to learning loss through the lens of interfaith engagement. Now, campus teams have joined IFYC's national Faith in the Vaccine initiative, which leverages the social capital and inspiration of faith communities and other trusted nonprofits to overcome barriers to vaccine information and access.
